I’ve always been intrigued by the ‘little cursed shop’ niche in horror. An odd sort of proprietor, hunched and haggard, vaguely describes his bizarre antiquities in riddles. Inevitably patrons buy the cursed objects and suffer consequences in any number of ways – depending on said purchase.

Submission guidelines:

Deadline for submissions – May 29th, 2014 – or until full.

Word Count: 2,000 – 5,000 words.

Please submit your manuscript as a *.rtf, *.doc or *.docx file (all other formats will automatically be rejected. Contact me prior to submitting if this presents an issue for you.)

Font and formatting: Please submit in Times New Roman, 12 point font; single line spacing. Please format the document to 1st line indentation of 1″. The page margin should be set to .1″ on all sides.

No headers, footers or page numbers.

Please check grammar.
